Letters: Bordering on hate speech

In response to the letter “Radio Station is ‘racist’ (Courier, February 10), in my opinion the views expressed in this particular letter are tantamount to hate speech. The writer is clearly expressing his/her hatred for two particular groups of people. The baseless irony resonates all through this letter. It is quite clear, when entering any…

Letters: School system ‘bastardised’

The definition of “bastardise” is “to corrupt something or make it impure by adding new elements”. An example of usage of the word “bastardise”: The schooling system of late has been “bastardised”. I say this because some schools operate with a bureaucratic ignorance governed by gender-political, kitchen type alliances and moderately uneducated SGB members whose…

Letters: Creative thinking for mall

Reading the letter “Move the taxi rank to the mall roof” (Courier February 10) regarding Ballito Bay Mall, I would like to add some further food for thought. The taxi rank could be given the basement parking area which already has a working car wash and a section for minor repairs could be added. With…

Letters: Most ridiculous idea ever

In response to the letter “Move the taxi rank to the mall roof” (Courier, February 10), I would like to say that this idea of moving the taxi rank to the Ballito Bay mall rooftop is the most ridiculous idea ever. The writer quite obviously does not live anywhere near the shopping centre, otherwise he/she…

Letters: Has the rainbow nation’s colour leaked?

In response to the article ‘Dating across the racial divide’ (Courier, January 27), the statement that caught my eye was ‘Old prejudices die hard’. I find that this statement is very accurate in relation to the amount of prejudice and racism still found in South Africa. This article is about prejudice against multi-racial relationships. From…

Letters: Teachers who cultivate and inspire

I’m a 17-year-old TrinityHouse Palm Lakes learner. In one of the recent issues of The North Coast Courier, I was inspired by an article entitled, “Excellence from nothing”. This article spoke about Nondenisa Secondary School. Despite having excessive numbers per classroom, hard work and achieving excellence is the name of the game. It is likewise…

Letters: Thank you!

I want to thank the staff of Zara’s Coffee Shop for finding my cell phone and keeping it safe for me. This says a lot for the calibre of people who work there. Very well done. COLLEEN MCKEE Ballito

Letters: Go and make someone else miserable!

The year 2016 has already passed by, more than a month ago!! My letter aims to give some down-to-earth “advice” to folk who are still living in the past. 2017 is not new born – it has passed the neonatal period and before you know it we will be into the next Christmas and New…

Letters: Fully support the container house

With reference to the article ‘Container house must go’ (Courier, February 10), I am deeply dismayed by the backward-thinking residents of Salt Rock. According to your article, an open-minded, forward-thinking resident is using his resources and ingenuity to build an innovative, green-friendly home and this has raised the ire of the locals. Well, to this…

Letters: Ballito desperately needs a police station

With the disturbing reports of crime increasing at a high rate in Ballito, I ask why there isn’t more of a police presence in the town? Why is there no police station closer than where it is now situated, way out Umhlali way? Even a satellite police station that should be in the area of…

Letters: Thumbs up to KwaDukuza SAPS

For quite some time the KwaDukuza SAPS has been best known for their shilly-shally approach and lack of prompt responsive measures in dealing with concerns and issues raised by the community. Contrary to the above, on Friday February 3, in the evening, I made a call requesting the immediate intervention of KwaDukuza SAPS as neighbouring…
